Review : ALTHEA UN-PORE-GETTABLE BOX #34

ALTHEA UN-PORE-GETTABLE BOX

I didn't know about you, but for me, this is my first time hearing about ALTHEA Box. I saw it everywhere but never knew about it before. It sounds pity, right but it is true. Having all the products in a box is pretty awesome and convenient I must say. So, let me explain what is ALTHEA Beauty Box. Every month, ALTHEA Fairy Team will release two types of boxes. There are Althea Boxes and Trend Boxes. ALTHEA Boxes are based on the specific themes while Trend Boxes will be packed with hot products either from a new brand or a new product from existing brands. Each box will contain about 6 to 12 full-size products depends on the theme and value. Not just that, you will also be given a few random samples.

There are quite a lot of boxes that have been launched. The one that I got is Un-Pore-Gettable.  It is a perfect set for me because I am having large pores at the moment. Without further a due, let's move to what's in the box, shall we?

🌈 Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask
🌈 Common labs Mild Peeling Finger Pad (7pieces)
🌈 Laneige Powder Fit Cushion #23 Sand
🌈 Rire All Kill Pore Tightening Ice Stick
🌈 Dear, Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner
🌈 My Beauty My Beauty Mask Pack
🌈 Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Care Sample Kit



Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask is a clay mask that exfoliates and clean your skin from deep within. I usually wear this twice a week before I went to sleep. The texture of the clay mask is thick and has beads to exfoliate the skin. The scent of this clay mask is quite subtle and not too strong. All you need to do is applying a proper layer of mask on my entire face and avoid eyes and lips area. Wait for it to fully dried around 10 minutes and wash it off. Eventhough it is a clay mask, my skin doesn't feel dry at all after using it. I also notice that my pores become shrink a bit after using the clay mask. I just wish that it come with a spatula or applicator to apply the products. But overall, it is such a great product.

Commonlabs Mild Peeling Finger Pad

Commonlabs Mild Peeling Finger Pad

Commonlabs Mild Peeling Finger Pad is a pad that gets rid of the dead skin cells, minimises pores and brighten the skin on the daily basis. All I can say is this is a multipurpose pad. You can use it as a toner, to remove your makeup or just using it to cleanse your face. It has a scent of lemon that makes it more refreshing. The essence absorbs pretty well without leaving any stickiness on the skin. I love using this pads because it is easy to use and multipurpose product. I can use it for almost everything when it comes to skincare or makeup. I even put some of the pads into my bag and use it whenever I need to. So convenient!

Laneige Powder Fit Cushion

Laneige Powder Fit Cushion #23 Sand

Laneige Powder Fit Cushion is one of my everyday essentials now. I still remember my first experienced using a cushion from another brand, it was bad. But this Laneige is perfect for me since it really matches my skin tone very well. It doesn't feel so heavy eventhough I am layering it up for a few times. The finish is matte but I still want to set it with powder to make it extra long-lasting. Once I applied the BB cushion, it can last for more than three hours. Medium to full coverage and covers some of my acne scars pretty good. What I love about this cushion is the mesh net flat cushion that makes the application easier and spread the product evenly on the skin. The product itself is light-weight and did not oxidize or looking gray at all.

Rire All Kill Pore Tightening Ice Stick

Rire All Kill Pore Tightening Ice Stick

The packaging of this Rire All Kill Pore Tightening Ice Stick somehow reminds me of a glue stick. Don't you think so? I opened the cap and the first thing I did was smell the stick. It has the subtle to it. The product on the stick is quite a lot which can last for months. I was wondering what the 'ice stick' means until I tried it on my skin around my cheeks, nose and undereye areas. It feels cold for a few seconds while the product melts to the skin. It doesn't feel sticky at all and the absorptions process was quite fast. You need to works or blends right away after applying it. I didn't feel much differences on my pores as for now but it does feel the cooling sensation. I guess I have to keep on using the product to see the result.

Dear, Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner

Dear, Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner

I haven't use any toner for a while because I couldn't find the one that I always use in the drugstores.  It is always sold out so I replaced mine by using this Dear, Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner. The scent of this toner is quite refreshing and has the smell of lavender. Quite hydrating and moisturising. It is also absorbing to the skin very fast so I don't have to wait until it dries to apply my moisturiser.

 My Beauty Red Ginseng Gold Hydrogel Mask

My Beauty Red Ginseng Gold Hydrogel Mask

I haven't tried any gel mask from my entire life, and this is a new world to me. I opened the mask and I can smell the scent of ginseng. It is quite strong. When I took out the mask, it was pack with plastic, maybe for a caution or easy application since it is gel mask. Oh ya, it has two parts of the mask, one for your upper face and the other is for your lower face. I am quite surprised when I see the mask that was gold gel mask with glitters in it. It was so pretty. Too bad, I didn't capture it. The mask itself was so hydrating and cooling. I am having a great time for the rest of 20 minutes wearing it. Definitely going to check out the other maks too.

 My Beauty Red Ginseng Gold Hydrogel Mask

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Care Kit

I started my skincare routine with cleansing my face using Innisfree Jeju volcanic pore cleansing foam. A little of the product should be enough to cleanse your face as it will foaming up a bit while washing it. I feel like my skin was brighter and fresh. Next, applying the toner. This kit came with a cotton pad, so I decided to use it together while applying the toner to my face. The cotton pad has three layers, different from the ordinary cotton pads. The toner is quite hydrating. Absorbs quite nice without leaving any sticky feeling on the skin.

πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„

If you buy any of Althea boxes, you are not just received the full-size products but you will also get some products samples from other brands. Like what I got here. The one that I really really love is It's My Magic Sponge. It is really magic. The sponge did expand to double the size when it wet or damp which make my makeup routine easier. I don't have to blend hardly anymore. Trust me, I am going to buy a new one in the future.




I have such a great experiences trying these products that I have never tried before. For more than three weeks I tried all of these products, I am having fun playing with these skincare and makeup products. Everything works well on the skin and I can see the differences before and after I'm using the products. If you guys want to have these box too, you can get it at ALTHEA website for just RM127 a box. Sound great, right? I bet you can save more rather than you buy it individually.

Thanks, Althea!

Review : Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder


Hi, guys! Today I'm back with another product review. I bet some of you might already try or have this product, right? This is Innisfree No Sebum Powder, one of the most selling products and people are raving about it that it is good and works wonder on their skin. I have been wanted to try this for ages and glad that I have it now. Let see if it works on my skin type, which is combination skin; oily and dry at the same time. I also noticed that there are different packaging for one product. The original packaging is light green but there are also in pink, yellow, blue, purple and more. There are so cute!

INNISFREE NO SEBUM MINERAL POWDER (5g)


🐾 DESCRIPTION 🐾

A replacement for oil control paper that leaves the skin soft and matte.

πŸ’ Soft and gorgeous skin with double sebum control system.
Sebum absorption powder: Powder that is friendly with oil than water absorbs excessive sebum on skin.
Nature originated mineral sebum control powder: Powder with excellent absorption power absorbs a huge amount of sweat and sebum.

πŸ’ 6 Free-System
Paraben free, talc free, artificial colors free, animal ingredients free, mineral oil free, artificial fragrance-free.


Price: RM26 
 Where to Get: Innisfree stores, ALTHEA and Hermo.






🐾 INGREDIENTS 🐾

Silica, Corn Starch Modified, Dimethicone/Vynil Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Mica (CI 77019), Methicone, Fragrance, Ethylhexylglycerin, Dimethicone, Glyceryl Caprylate, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Mineral Salts, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Mentha Arvensis Leaf Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol

🐾 HOW TO USE 🐾

At the last stage of your daily skincare or makeup, use the powder puff to gently apply onto entire face or sebum concentrated areas.



🐾 MY VERDICTS 🐾

Like myself trying it out for times to times until now, I do agree with other people opinions telling that this product is good. It really is. It does mattify without feeling cakey and thick to the skin. Other than that, it is also affordable so everyone can have it to try or repurchase.

First of all, let's talk about the packaging. It is a rounded jar that has a plastic separator and a puff. Yet for me, I prefer using a powder brush more. Don't get me wrong, it still works great even by using the puff. I just think that face brush makes it easier to blend afterward. All you need to do is pour some of the powder to the cap and use puff or brush to apply to your face. This No Sebum Mineral Powder is a loose powder for display of soft and shine-free skin. Perfect for me since I do have oily skin. Usually, after few hours my skin tends to get oily on my T-zone and cheeks areas, however, when I am wearing this powder when I am going out, my face still stay matte for about three hours and could be more actually. I still do have oiliness on my skin though but the oiliness is better than when I am not using the powder. You can touch up or reapply if you want to for a fresh looking skin. I really love how it feels on my skin. It doesn't feel dry at all eventhough it is matte, which is something that I should give a point to. Plus, a little goes a long way. I don't need to apply much to set my base makeup like BB Cream or foundation because the powder will 'stick' on my skin as you blend in. I even use it to bake around my under eye areas, and still looking good so far. Last but not least, it has a fresh and kind of herbs scent to it but not too strong.

I really enjoyed using this product. It is one of the powders that I will pick up whenever I am doing my makeup. Highly recommended for those who have an oily skin. I'm not sure for others skin type though as it might be drying a bit. Will I repurchase it again? Of course, yes!

Have you tried this product? If yes, share your thoughts. If no, will you try this product? Comment and share down below. Would love to know πŸ’•

P/s: What should I review next?

Lazada Online Revolution Blogger Contest


Lazada is having a sale again, guys! I know there will be a lot of sales everywhere, here and there but please do not miss to check out Lazada website since there are currently having Online Revolution (https://www.lazada.com.my/online-revolution) that will take place from 11 November to 14 December 2017. As usual, each time Lazada having a sale there will be a contest for bloggers like us to win amazing prizes like vouchers. For those who still haven't join the contest, please do so. You might have the chances to win vouchers to shop at Lazada. I wish you guys and me (of course!) a good luck.

Let's move on to the questions, shall we?


DO YOU REMEMBER THE FIRST PRODUCT THAT YOU EVER PURCHASED ONLINE? WHAT WAS IT AND HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE?

Yes, I do remember my first time purchasing through online. It was my toothbrush makeup brushes that I got from Lazada. It was my first time shopping online and also my first time shopping at Lazada. It was easy and my item arrived safely at the door. My item was in a perfect condition and well-wrapped. I have no issue with anything from the ordering process to the delivery process, everything was good. I love the makeup brushes so much and I still have it till now.

WHICH TYPE OF PRODUCTS WOULD YOU PREFER BUYING ONLINE?

I love to buy anything in health and beauty categories. There are various of choices and brands that I can choose before I decide to buy something. 

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT ONLINE SHOPPING?

Since it is online shopping, there will be loads of brands on one website or place so it will be easier to shop than going to the mall where not everything has it there. Minus the amount of time waiting for the package to arrive, I really love how easy it is to make a payment to every purchase. It can be made through credit/debit card, cash on delivery and more. You order, make a payment and voila, your package is in your hand.

WHICH PRODUCTS DID YOU BUY OR ARE YOU PLANNING TO BUY ON LAZADA DURING THE ONLINE REVOLUTION SALES?

I am currently looking for shoes, makeup, and beauty products at the moment. I have been surveying some of them on Lazada and added it to my wishlists. Here are the items that I am planning to buy.




I want to know the differences and how it feels by using a face mist and setting spray after doing my makeup. The ingredients might be totally different as well as the ingredients and effect after using it. Yeah, I just wondering which is the best so that I can just keep using it in the future.



Your girl here has never had enough makeup brushes. I still think that I need more brushes for me to apply my makeup. But if it is affordable and the quality is good why not, right?



I'm still new to contouring, highlighting and blush thingy. So I think this would be a perfect palette for a beginner like me who still trying new things in makeup. Plus, I love the brand. I have tried the eyeshadow palette and it was quite good and I feel like I want to try the whole collections of Focallure makeup items.


Until the next one. Bye!

Monthly Roundup + Highlights : October 2017



If somebody asks me what is my favourite month, I would answer OCTOBER. The month that I've been waiting every year. It's kind of long months away but the day will come, right? I bet some of you might already know the reasons why. It is because my birthday is on October 17th. Who's team Libra? High five ✋I can't believe that we just one month and three weeks before starting a new year. Have you archived all of your goals and resolutions? If yes, good to you. You guys deserve a clap for working hard. But if you're not, don't worry. We still have time. Let's try and do our best to make it happen, okay?


 HIGHLIGHTS OF THE MONTH 

BOWLING TIME

It's been a while since my last time playing bowling. We went to Berjaya Times Square after having a breakfast. It is my Mom's office event so we are playing bowling for free for throughout two hours. Unfortunately, my team that included my two youngest brothers and another two kids were able to play one game and a half due to a technical problem of the lane. So sad. 

22nd BIRTHDAY

I am officially 22nd years old, guys. As long as I remember, this is my first time being at Malacca when I am on my birthday. We are planning to celebrate there at first but since it is school holiday and most of my aunt, uncle and cousins were not at Malacca and working. But it is okay. I still not celebrating my birthday tho cause waiting for my whole family to be united together and my siblings to be back at KL. I would like to thank each of everyone who wished me on 17th October last time.

WENT TO SOME FAMOUS PLACES IN MALACCA

I talked to my Mom that whenever we went back to my Mom's village we always at home and mostly not going anywhere. So we went to some famous places in Malacca to enjoy ourselves like eating Roti Canai at Roti Canai Kayu Arang. This is different than usual Roti Canai as it is cooked by using charcoals and the roti was so soft. I would suggest you try it out and please bear in mind that the place can be too crowded for you and you will be having some hard time finding a table to sit cause it is always a full house! Next, we went to Coconut Shake Batu Berendam. I could say that this one is better than Klebang one. I don't know why but it tastes better here. Plus, having a full jag of coconut water for free is a bonus. We also tried Yong Tao Foo there and it is quite good too. 


✭ SONGS OF THE MONTH 

Dia - Dayang Nurfaizah πŸ”Ή Babe - Hyuna πŸ”Ή Good Night - DIA πŸ”Ή Hold Your Hand - Eunha (Gfriend) feat. Chunji (TeenTop) πŸ”Ή Heart Signal - Yuju feat. Jihoo

✭ DRAMA/SHOW/MOVIE OF THE MONTH 

Twenty Again πŸ”Ή While You Were Sleeping πŸ”Ή Strong Woman Do Bong Soon πŸ”Ή Titian Cinta

I noticed that Twenty Again was airing twice on television. One was on TVN and the other one is TV9, which still airing, I guess. It is a story about Ha No Ra who dreamed to be a dance but she let her dream and got married at age 19 years old. Then, she became a full-time housewife until one day she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and given a six-month prognosis. She decided to go to school and experienced the college life. She went to the school where her husband and 20s years old son and met Cha Hyun Seok, who had a crush on Ha No Ra in high school. While You Were Sleeping is a story of Hong Joo who can see unfortunate events in her dream and meets a prosecutor named Jae Chan who develops the same premonitions as her and does everything he can to prevent her dream from happening. I bet most of you guys already watched this drama. I love the chemistry of Suzy and Lee Jong Suk in here. Hong Joo is so shameless and straightforward while Jae Chan is smart but still cheeky at the same time. Haha. I love this drama so much, the storyline, the scene, everything seems good and perfect to me. Can't believe that it is going to end soon. Hmm. Strong Woman Do Bong Soo was not bad too. I got a chill on the kidnapping girls part. Wondering what if it is happening to me, it will be something that I never imagine to happen. Ahn Min Hyuk is so playful and I never stop smiling and laughing when his part came out. Do Bong Soon is so cute. How can I resist when this two combo are together? The bomb part is legit. So glad that she got her power back and save them from the bomb. Titian Cinta. Watched this drama because of Zul Ariffin because I haven't watched the other casts before. The story was not bad. I sometimes got pissed off by Haris's Mom and Sofia. They are trying so hard to make Aisy and Haris apart. I still haven't watched the last episode though but I guess it is predictable? Hehe

People Thoughts of Someone who Has Acne Prone Skin



First of all, I would like to say sorry if you feel uneasy with everything that I'm going to mention after this. I'm not trying to offend you or other people but this is what I have been experienced in my life. I just want to share and spit out what I have been keeping until this time, hope you don't mind it. Okay? Believe me or not, I never share about this to anyone. This is my first time telling you my story.

Not everyone has a good skin. Same goes for me. I have been struggling with acne since I was a teenager until now. I got bullied by people surrounding me regarding my skin condition. I got called as 'Miss Pimple' by someone. I also got asked why I have acne skin such a young age (with not so a good manner). Those things always make me feel insecure with my own skin. Do you think that I ever want this to happen to me? Of course not. To be honest, I'm a bit sad when people approach me saying about my skin and my flaws. I already knew that I have acne on my face but to say it on my face like I didn't even notice it, I feels like crying.



1. Wearing too much makeup

People always said that wearing a makeup is the reason why we have acne on our skin. Little did they know, there are many factors why we have acne such as the unstable hormone, allergy, stress, not enough sleep and more. From my opinion, makeup will not give you acne unless you do not remove it properly, sleep with makeup and also wearing inauthentic or fake makeup. I'm not the person who wears makeup every single day. There's the time where I applied more like BB cream, eyeshadow, blusher, and lipstick but on my daily makeup routine, I will go to a minimal look such as powder, lip tint, and mascara. That's it. And I will always make sure that I remove my makeup before I go to sleep because who wants to get a pimple on the next day, right? What I can say here is, makeup is not the issue. The main problem is our behavior. If we handle it well, I am sure we are not going to have those pimples moment.

2. Not taking care of your skin

From what I see here, people who have struggled with acne are the people who care about their skin the most. Am I right? They tried so many products for their skin just to find a solution so that their skin will get better and better. Then how come some of the people just simply said that we are not taking care of our skin when we really do. It is nonsense. I tried so many products from local to some drugstores skin, some works and some not. So from the process, the will be some effect like pimples and redness coming out on the skin because it is not suitable and harms to my skin as my skin is sensitive to some ingredients in the products. Even now I am still in the process of searching and trying new products to find the one that is good and suitable for my skin.

WHAT THEY DID?

They tell you to do this, to do that. They try to promote and sell their products to us, who have acne. This always happened to me. When I was going out, someone was looking at me from up to down and approaching me and start the conversation. 

P/s: Sorry I have to write in Malay since it is easier and more understandable to tell the story.

Situation 1

Stranger: Hi, dah lama ke kulit macam ni? (While pointing out to my face)
Me: A'ah, since sekolah menengah lagi.
Stranger: Oh, abang pun dulu kulit macam awak. Lagi teruk daripada awak. Tengok kulit abang, dah takde jerawat dah.
Me: (Smile awkwardly to him.)
Stranger: Abang boleh bagi adik cuba produk yang abang guna ni. Adik bagi nombor telefon adik nanti abang share produk apa.
Me: Takpelah. Saya nak cepat ni. (And I walked away from him.)

Situation 2

I tried what they suggested but ended up...

I went to a shopping mall and there was a booth set up there. I was just about to see what is there then a lady approached me and talk about her products while putting it on my skin. It was a cream to remove blackhead, dead skin and also good for acne skin. Since she was really convincing I decided to buy it. But when I tried it at home, it doesn't work that well and I even got more pimples on my face.

So the conclusion for this is, no matter what skin type do you have, be positive and be confident with your own self. I know how it feels to have acne skin, it is painful. But do not give up, okay? Try your best to take a good care of your skin. You might not see the results now but you will thank yourself in the future. If you want to know what skincare products that I am currently using, click [link]. And again, I apologize if any of my words hurt your feeling or heart. I'm really sorry, I just want to share what I have been feeling from all this time.

Thanks for those who read from the beginning till the end. I really really appreciate it πŸ’•

Monthly Roundup : August & September 2017


How fast time flies and now we already near end of October. August and September were great. I was supposed to publish monthly roundup for last two months before but I have no mood to do the post. Even right now I am struggling with it but I have to overcome it as much as I can cause my mission for next month is to clear up my drafts section before I proceed with brand new posts. I have a few blog posts on the draft that need to be published because I if I don't do it I am sure I will never do it. So yeah, let's work harder this time.


❀ SONGS OF THE MONTH

I have lots of songs this time due to the two-month monthly posts that I missed. Not to mention, there are few of groups who made a comeback within the months like Gfriend, DIA, Girls' Generation and more. I'm really looking forward to their comeback and loving all of their tracks songs.

Love Whisper - Gfriend πŸ”Ή Holiday - Girls' Generation πŸ”ΉAll Night - Girls' Generation πŸ”Ή Light Up the Sky - Girls' Generation πŸ”Ή Fan - Girls' Generation πŸ”ΉSeparuh Matiku Bercinta - Dayang Nurfaizah πŸ”Ή See You in Heaven - Kassy, Basick πŸ”Ή Brand New Eyes - Bea Miller πŸ”Ή Collide - Boyce Avenue πŸ”Ή Can't Stop - DIA πŸ”Ή Summer Rain - Gfriend πŸ”Ή Rainbow - Gfriend πŸ”Ή Pallete - IU feat G-Dragon πŸ”Ή Gashina - Sunmi πŸ”Ή







 ❀ DRAMA/SHOW/MOVIE OF THE MONTH


Pinggan Tak Retak Nasi Tak Dingin πŸ”Ή School 2017 πŸ”Ή Syurga Yang Tak Dirindukan πŸ”Ή Syurga Yang Tak Dirindukan 2 πŸ”Ή7 Hari Mencintaiku πŸ”Ή

I was not so interested to watch all of the dramas and movies that listed above at first but then I wonder why the hype of those dramas and movies were so high and I decided to give it a try to watch it. So even I do not like it, I can just stop there, right? But not. I found all of these have their own specialties.

 Let's talk about Pinggan Tak Retak Nasi Tak Dingin first, shall we? Idris Khan and Raisha Rizrose as the main character are not bad actually. Even though both of them were lacking a bit but it is okay. It is acceptable since Raisha is still new in acting. I found Hani's character is quite interesting. I don't know how to explain. But I give an applause to Azrel Ismail who played as Sharul Nizam. I felt annoyed with Nizam the whole time. Especially when he already knew that Hani already married to Saiful Mizan, he still wants to get Hani and neglect her own wife who loves him so much. I am planning to rewatch this drama again anytime soon since I love the drama (except the annoying Nizam. Haha). School 2017 was great too despite it was Sejeong first drama. I haven't watched the other series of School before but trust me the drama was good. It was not just focused on school but the relationship between friends and family. There are a lot of positive value we should learn and take from this drama and applied it in our life. I didn't plan to watch Surga Yang Tak Dirindukan at first but when it was on television, I just watch it then proceed with the second one cause I want to know what happens next. Quite interesting and touched as well. 7 Hari Mencintaiku, a drama adaptation of the novel written by Siti Rosmizah. I haven't read the novel nor watch the drama when it is airing. This drama was so good. I must say that all of the actors and actress really acted well. I was so pissed with Mia Adriana due to her ego, arrogant, and selfishness. And Khuzairi was kind and patient enough to face her even though she treats her so badly. I cried so much while watching this drama from the first episode till the end, no lie.

BOOK OF THE MONTH

I am currently working on to read my unread novels that I bought years ago. So this time, I picked Tuan Anas Mikail. I skipped from watching the drama and read the novel instead. Why? I don't know, I don't feel like to.

What I feel about his novel? Not bad. I love it and I probably going to read again some other time. I was not interested to read this novel before because of the cover. Now I really really knew what don't judge a book by its cover means. The cover is not important, what matters the most is the inside of the book.

How I Pamper Myself At Home


After a long day, you feel tired and all you need at that moment is rest. We have been working harder throughout the week and we need at least a day on the weekend to pamper yourself at home or having a me-time session. It does not matter what kind of activities you are doing as long as it is relaxing it can be considered as pampering yourself.

Here are how I pamper myself at home:

Photo by Shawnee Wilborn on Unsplash

1. Do some treatments

Let me tell you a fact, for almost 21 years in my life I have never go to any spa or salon. Who doesn't love to have someone who does something good and beneficial to yourself right? But due to costs for the treatment and time, I think it is better for me to just do it at home. It is same, what? Who says you cannot do facial care or hair treatment at home, you are totally wrong.

There are lots of things you can do when it comes to facial care. It works as same as your skincare routine but you are focusing more on your skin. You know what I mean? For example, you cleanse and exfoliate your skin. You put toner on your face after you are done with cleansing. Apply moisturiser while massaging the skin and on. Sometimes on the daily basis, we don't even have enough time to put or wear a mask but on my free time, I love to pamper my skin by wearing a mask. Sometimes sheet mask could be the easiest way and sometimes I also love to make my own face mask according to my skin type. For example, mixing three spoons of oats, a spoon of honey and a bit of cocoa powder together until it becomes a thick paste and then apply to the whole face thinly avoiding your eyes and lips area. Wait for it to dry for a moment. Once it is fully dry, you want to remove it by massaging your face in a circular motion until it removed.

When it comes to hair treatment, I usually trim my hair by my own before I anything to my hair. And then I will normally shampoo and conditioner my hair using my usual hair products. Good news for those who love to colour your hair. eSalon is an at-home hair company that made a custom hair color just for you. How? eSalon factor in everything from your amount of gray and your coloring history to your hair's length and it's texture. For more information about their custom hair colour, you can go here.

2. Reading

Reading can be good not just for your mental but spiritual too. When it comes to reading, it does not matter what types of books you are reading, it can be magazines, novels, journals or even an article. Take a moment of your day to read at least a page a day to calm and relax your mind. I did it and it is really helpful. While reading, a cup of coffee or tea as a accompany during your reading also sounds great!



3. Long shower

This is how I calm myself at home. You know when you have a bad day or whenever I feel down or stressed out, I love to stand under the cold running shower. I feel nothing but refresh after that. Actually, I love to be under the rain but it is not good for your health as you might get sick on the next day so I think the shower will do. I read somewhere that cold shower can relieve the symptoms of depression, improve the stimulation of the circulatory system that sends blood to your organs to keep them warm and also release stress.


4. Listen to favourite songs

It is better to have a music on than silent, right? I have two types of playlists which are first, all the songs that I love and two, the sound of nature. When it comes to working, I will usually listen to my favourite songs because I can sing along and chill myself but whenever I want to have me time, I will always listen to the sound of nature like raining, waves, birds chirping, waterfall and more. It is really calming my mind and it also helps me to fall asleep whenever I have a hard time to close my eyes.



So, how you pamper yourself at home? Mind to share with me? πŸ’•

Product Empties #2


I think I have not done this Empties Series for such a long time. Last time I shared about this series which also my first product empties series was on early this year. Go check it out here if you want to. I have been trying some new products from the past months and here I am, sharing with you guys what I felt about the products, does it works well on my skin and everything. It is quite a lot than last time, hope you guys enjoy reading it!


Nano White Fresh Miracle Mist

This is my very first face mist I have tried. Back then, I never know what face mist is. But I am sure that I know a bit about face mist now. I already did a review on this product here. I love the finished on my skin especially once it dries. It gives me such a natural glow and shine which I like because it makes my skin looks healthy and fresh. Will I repurchase this again? Yes, because it works well on the skin but I want to try another face mists too so I will go back to this face mist if I found none.




PIXY Eye & Lip Makeup Remover + PIXY Gentle & Moist Cleansing Lotion

I received this set of makeup remover from PIXY because I entered their contest a long time ago. This eye 7 lip makeup remover is mixed with water and oil so it removes makeup very well without even trying so hard especially waterproof mascara or any matte lipstick. Same goes to the cleansing lotion but unfortunately, it has been expired before I got to finish the whole bottle. Since I do not want to waste it by just throwing it into the bin, I just using it as a first step to clean my brushes. What I did was, pour some of the liquid to the old cotton t-shirt and swirl brushes to it until it half way clean. Then I clean my brushes like I usually did by using soap and water. It helps me a lot cause I do not have to try hard when I cleaning my brushes which is quite a lot.




Aiken Tea Tree Oil Spot Away Pore Refining Toner

I do not know if I should tell or share with you guys about this toner anymore cause I have been mentioning this product for quite a few times already. This is my all time favourite toner. I do not think that I will change to the other ones since this one already works very well on my skin and I am not complaining anything. It is good for those who have acne-prone skin or combination skin. If you guys have not tried this yet, please give it a try. Who knows it will works on you too? Did I already mentioned that this is my 5th bottle?



Sunplay SPF 130+++

This is a sample size of this sunblock that I got when I went to a drugstore back then. I even have the actual size of this sunblock where I still not finished yet. I love using this sunblock every time I went to swimming pool or beach. It protects my skin from getting sunburn and tan. I do not know why but I insist to use it as a daily sunblock because of the texture but for the time I went swimming, it will be perfect. I need to have a sunscreen though or else my skin will be damaged by the sunray. Any suggestions of drugstore sunscreen you have tried before?



Ginvera Marvel White Zero Blackhead Marvel Gel

I previously did a full review on this product before. [Link: here] I have mixed feelings about this one. Sometimes I love it, sometimes I am not. What I love about this Ginvera is, it is easy to use and works well on my skin. I regularly using it as my daily exfoliator before I wash my face at night since it is gentle on my skin and does not irritate my skin at all. Once you scrub it to your skin you can immediately see the results. All the junks will come out and your skin will feel clean. What I did not like about is it is supposed to remove my blackheads on my skin but nothing removed. The blackhead still there inside my pores. So I think it works best as exfoliator than blackhead remover.



Vaseline Petroleum Jelly

I have been experiencing dry and chapped lips for a long time already. And trust me, having those flaky lips is not cool at all. All I did was picking up the dry lips until it is bleeding. And then my lips will feel smooth again. So to prevent myself from picking the dry-flaky lips, again and again, I chose to moisturize my lips using this Vaseline Petroleum Jelly day and night. Other than applying it to my lips, I also use Vaseline on my daily basis. It is multipurpose products that suitable for everything. I even did my own lip balm with it and it was good.


Ponybrown Lovely Sweet Hand Cream

I never used any hand cream before. I think lotion is enough. But thanks to Aynal I got the chance to try this amazing hand cream. It smells so good and I kept using it, again and again, each time I am going out. Love it so much!



Daiso Twin Side Mascara

I did not expect this mascara to be that good consider it is from Daiso. It has two side mascara that you can use for your upper and lower lashes. It is waterproof and easy to be removed by only water too. If you want to have a natural kind of lashes, I recommend you to buy this one. It gave you curly lashes but unfortunately, it did not hold the lashes for a long time as I noticed my lashes were back to normal. I heard some of them are good too so I would love to try other mascaras from Daiso if I have the chance to go to the store.


Aimeili Color My Brows

I bought this one at Mr. DIY months ago. Back then I was into fleek eyebrows so after I filled my brows using brow powder then I applied this brow mascara. It thickens up my brows and holds my brows for a long time at the same time. It is waterproof and you probably need makeup remover to remove it or else it gonna stay. I am now into natural looking brows so I do not think I will buy this again unless I feeling like I want to have full brows back I definitely buying this one.



Daiso Disposal Powder Puff (12pcs)

I am still cannot manage to have a beauty blender so I think using this beauty sponge is enough, I guess? Of course, it can never beat the beauty blender but as long as this one works for me to apply my BB Cream, that is okay. It is absorbing the products but the best thing is I can just throw it away without thinking twice since it is cheap. Hehe

Savee 3D Paper Mask Series

I bought this around February this year and finally chose to use it. It works the same as others masks except that the sheet mask also came with neck and ears part. I don't know how to explain but the sheet is different than actual sheet mask maybe that is why it called 3D?
